📅 Thought for today:
‘It used to be that we imagined that our mobile phones would be for us to talk to each other. Now, our mobile phones are there to talk to us.’

Today was the first day of my supervision course in London – Paddington to be precise.
It was a great day, and I think part of that is because I forgot my mobile phone.
I am so unused to travelling in and out of London at rush hour (it was 2 hours door-to-door).
In my haste, I walked out without my phone. I could have gone back when I realised at the station, but then I would have missed the start of the course.
I honestly think the day went so well because I didn’t have my phone. In the breaks, I spoke with people – although a few were glued to their phones.
I am starting to wonder whether I should leave it behind tomorrow and Friday as well!
